Meeting Pattern Exception Process

Meeting Pattern Exception Process

Requests for exceptions must be made in writing to the joint C-USP/C-GS Subcommittee on Class Scheduling Patterns and, if approved, will be scheduled only after all other courses have been assigned a classroom. Instructor preference is not considered to be a valid basis for an exception. Any request for an exception must have the approval of the department or program chair.

Requests for exceptions should include a rationale for why the class or classes cannot fit the regular meeting patterns as well as an assessment of student impact resulting from the exception.

To request an exception to the meeting patterns, submit the Request for Exception to Classroom Standard Meeting Patterns form. This form will route to the Senate committee coordinator, Shunit Harpaz <shunit@stanford.edu>. When the request is complete, Shunit will forward this to the subcommittee and inform you of the subcommittee's disposition.
